Apparently the manufacturer's of this trailer don't understand the marketplace.



Gen X and Gen Y will never buy this. This is the kind of trailer the GPTB *** Weasels**** will use when I wuss out on meeting them anywhere to race.



I've got until summer of '07 now to think of another lame excuse or blame my momma.



My scanner is still broken or else I'd post my handsome face and rippped body right next to my picture of my outdated and worthless UJM.



Bio rules. Bio Chrysler stock!

Default Problem solved!

All you gots to do to get GenX or Y to buy them is simply paint "Xtreme Trailer" on it in bright flourescent letters. Then they'll line up like robots.



They should also offer a fringed version for the GPTB.

While it may be handier and sturdier, this trailer comes in second in the KPPI rating behind the $200 Harbor Freight model. It will be purchased only by GPTB'ers who have money to burn from the profits they're getting from their Halliburton buddies from the post-election $4-per-gallon gas. The Grating Monomaniacal Pedant predicts that he will buy a trailer to take his Triumph Buell Choco-Thunder 675 to Freddie Spencer Track School just as soon as the dinette set is paid off.

Really nice, but $1400 buys a lot of track time.

Please forgo the "child casket" analogy in future posts.



At least until no more babies die.



Please?

Way too expensive unless towable by bike (buying and insuring a cage and all).



Otherwise sounds good.

there are also cases where your motorcycle quits on you and you don't happen to be self-taught mechanic so you need to take it in. Every scratch, ding and bit of broken plastic on my KLR 650 has occurred at just such times, in trying to keep it secured to this carrier that mounts crosswise just out from the trailer hitch. And if you get it secured, theres the issue of compressing the suspension too much, in which case, when you loosen one strap, its liable to spring up and do a little flip before landing on the asphalt.
